As a mother with the best interest of my children at heart, preparing them for the real world is not easy. I can only do so much to protect them when I cannot be with them 24-7. That is neither realistic nor practical. One of the things that troubles me the most for my daughter’s sake is all the warped body image issues that crop up every where from media to playground talk.
